Alexander McQueen S/S 1998 spine corset. The construction of this large body piece was complex, and Shaun Leane used a human skeleton to cast the corset. He crafted each bone by hand. The corset fastens like armour with three black leather buckle-straps.
Aside from the amazingness that was the entire McQueen exhibit/MET Gala, I must say that the highlight of the evening came at the end. Riccardo Tisci is one of my top three favorite living designers and I have never before had the pleasure of meeting him.
